who believed the best economic system was one in which businesses compete to gain profit with minnimal or no goverment control?
Answer: Adam Smith
Scottish philosopher Adam Smith (1723-1790) was strongly critical of the economic system that prevailed in his era. Smith criticized what he called the "mercantile system" because it restricted trade and thus restricted economic growth. The mercantile system believed the wealth of the world was a fixed amount, measured primarily in gold and silver accumulated. The system promoted a nation selling its products abroad but not needing to buy from others, or imposing heavy tariffs if importing anything. Colonies were created to provide raw materials and resources to the mother country and a market for the mother country's products. Commerce was heavily controlled by the government through charters granted to specific trading companies.
Adam Smith countered by advocating a free market -- the opportunity individual businessmen and for all nations to increase their wealth by exchanging goods freely with one another according to what would become known as capitalist principles. We also speak of "laissez-faire" ("let go") as a term for this sort of free-market economy, set free from government controls. This term came from a French group of thinkers called the Physiocrats (meaning "rule by nature') who were working during the same 18th century era as Smith. The Physiocrats and Smith were in agreement about getting government out of the business of controlling business.
Read the following quotation from Catholic bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet at the court of Louis XIV. Rulers then act as the ministers of God and as his lieutenants on earth. It is through them that God exercises his empire. . . . Consequently, as we have seen, the royal throne is not the throne of a man, but the throne of God himself. Who would most likely have disagreed with the bishop’s point of view?a. a French aristocrat b. a bishop who was not a member of the royal court c. a member of the British Parliament d. an absolute monarch from Spain or Russia
Answer: c. a member of the British Parliament
This quotation argues that the power of absolute monarchs is invested in them by God. Therefore, they have the "divine right" to rule.
The most likely individual to disagree with this statement would be a member of the British Parliament. If kings were indeed like God himself, there would be no need to control or restrict their operations. However, this is the fuction of Parliament. Moreover, Parliament is the way in which common people are represented in government, which would be discouraged if the King had been appointed by divine right.
On the other hand, French aristocrats, bishops, and absolute monarchs are more likely to believe in this position as they benefit from both the monarchy and the interconnection between politics and religion.
Answer: your answer is the third option : a member.......parliament
